There is not much more magical than visiting a theme park with your loved ones.
Whether it be a Disney Park– like Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort— or another theme park around the country, like Universal Orlando Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, Busch Gardens, SeaWorld Orlando, Cedar Point, or Six Flags, you’re sure to have a great time and experience attractions unlike anything you can experience elsewhere.
However, a recent incident at a popular Six Flags theme park left many stunned and an entertainer fighting for their life.
Scott Nelson, known as Murrugun The Mystic, suffered injuries that could’ve been fatal at Six Flags of America in Bowie, Maryland.
Six Flags officials say that first-responders were called, not due to an incident that actually took place in the show though, but for “unrelated health conditions.”
A GoFundMe page set up for the sword swallower had this to say about the accident:
Reports indicate that they also had to remove most of one of his lungs.
“He hasn’t been able to eat for a month, he’ll be in the DC hospital for at least another week, and he obviously hasn’t been able to work and will not be able to work for some time.”
It’s unclear exactly what happened to cause the incident. We wish Nelson a speedy and complete recovery.
